Re: Permission modes and AutoCreate

The snippet in the original message is from editfiles; the question was if 
anyone else had success (or noticed problems) in getting AutoCreated files to 
display the perms requested via the Umask directive.

Files is indeed a good way to hack around the bug (if it is a bug), but that 
doesn't change the fact that AutoCreate'd files have bad perms (at least for 
me).  :-(
